Opting for an
informal but theatrical show at her new Third Street flagship store,
designer/retailer Trina Turk hosted a stylish soir e for press and buyers,
tempting them with champagne, tasty nibbles and coquettish fall attire.
Cheeky models preened in stylized vignettes throughout the Kelly Wurtlzer-designed
space and showcased Turk's strong understanding of mid-century style.
Paying homage to a city born in the 50's, she effortlessly captured the slim
hourglass silhouette, rouged lips and perfectly coordinated accessories.
Yet in Turk's artful hands, the references became delightfully unraveled.
Updo's were unkempt, models changed outfits with studied indecision, and a
young beauty lounged listlessly near a stuffed cat. No doubt press
photographers got their fill of editorial material, and guests left happy
with premium goody bags in hand.
